this thread needs to slow down.....compliments raise the hourly rate all seriousness though eddie is exceptional at what he does and has great people skills. It's not often you find someone in business who can handle both. I can also tell you he will not let anything leave his shop until it is working perfectly...no matter how bad you want it back lol

Does anyone sell a Eddie Young blow up doll??? I'd like to have him on board in case my engine's need tuning or i need someone to talk to. Chicks would dig it.

I learned long ago that I'm a terrible liar. I can't lie to save my life, so I just don't do it.

I grew up with my family racing inboard hydoplanes since before I was born. As soon as I was able to walk, I was in the shop helping my dad and asking questions. When I was 15, we got a blown alcohol flatbottom. The engine was a little over our head, so we contacted a local engine builder and boat racer. Shortly after at the age of 15, I started working for that builder. I worked for him off and on (more on than off) for the next 15 years. After I realized that I wasn't going any further, I went out on my own. I wanted to get into efi and the builder I worked for wanted nothing to do with it. I knew that efi would dominate some day and I didn't want to be left behind.
After losing everything in Katrina, I pick up the pieces and moved to TN. I have had the good fortune of having some great people help me along the way with questions that I had. That's why I am so eager to help others. I love to read and will read anything I can get my hands on. I love to learn, so a bunch of what I know was learned through either reading or self taught. Some was learned through trail and error. I don't mind doing some research before I build an engine for the first time. The first Quad Rotor engine I built was built on paper and researched for 6 months before I ever bought the first part, and it turned out just as expected.
I don't pretend to know it all and I still learns things on a regular basis. That's what keeps it fun.
Thanks everyone for the support and kind words.
Eddie

i called eddie about a pair of 548s that i am building to make sure that i was on the correct track with my parts selection. he spent atleast half of a hour talking to me and confirmed that my cam,heads,etc were correct for where i wanted to be. he was awesome !!!! i told him that i wanted to pay him for his time, but he said that there was no charge. i think that says alot about eddie as a person.
